80

On September 29, 2020, Gript media published an article about Gabriel Alejandro Gentile, otherwise known as Barbie Kardashian, described by Gript as "a biological male who’s had no hormone treatment or surgery, and has sworn to kill and rape women, [who] has been placed in a women’s prison by the Irish authorities." He was arrested for threatening to kill two women, including his mother, and had previously attacked a case worker and torn her eyelids.

On October 13, 2020, Gript released another article, now saying that Irish child and family agency Tusla has legally threatened them into removing the article, even though Gentile is nearly 19 years old. Gript stated that they would not comply.

Today, I've realized that both articles have been removed and instead replaced with a picture of the word "censored." Therefore, I assume that Tusla were successful in gagging Gript.

This case provides one of the most potent arguments against self-ID that I've seen so far, and I would bet anything that this is exactly why this topic is being censored. There has been a court order to gag even Irish Twitter users from sharing the removed article. It's all very disturbing. How does such a so-called oppressed extreme minority group have so much power to control this narrative?

Rose of Dawn (a TRA-critical trans person) made a Youtube video to comment on this topic. RoD also corrects in the comments the oft-repeated rumor that trans-identified male Kardashian is a victim himself because he was abused by his mother. It is the opposite- Kardashian was abusive toward his mother, not the other way around.

Edit: Correction. It is only Irish twitter that is censoring tweets on this topic due to the court order.

This is what gets to me. Trans people claim to be the most oppressed human beings in history. But I cannot think of another group who has had the power to censor criticism to this extent. People in high places in both the corporate world and the government are shamelessly pandering to them and screwing over 50% of the population (females) to appease less than 1% of the population (people identifying as trans). And the medical establishment has changed the rules to allow anyone to just diagnose themselves as trans and demand expensive hormones and surgery (and any doctor who pushes back risks being painted as a bigot and losing their job). And new laws are in place forcing everyone else to bend over backwards to validate their subjective identities (even if they're obviously bullshit)!

I wish my people were "oppressed" in that way (instead of, y'know, the usual way oppression goes)

I have a lot of respect for Rose of Dawn. It's a shame people like Rose are treated like pariahs in the trans community simply for trying to police the community against obvious fakers & perverts like this.

He is still in woman face, banking off women's need for agreement. So, he mocks his own trans Cult in order to get closer to women and to become trusted by women.

I find him and others like him disgusting. I also find the women t who cowtow to his ilk pitiful.

But sure. Pay his rent with your fauning eyes. It won't be the first time women have used their time and energy to support gross men. It won't be the first time men use flamboyance to capture unearned authority from women.

I can like & respect individual trans people while still believing they're not real women. Having men within that community speak out is valuable because, sadly, those men are more likely to be listened to than a chorus of women.

That was a bit harsh. 🙂

We don’t all hate all trans people here.

[–] Carrots90 2 points (+3|-1) Edited

I agree.

Getting hate from both sides has got to be lonely.

I believe there are true transwomen. They aren’t true women, but they are true transwomen.

That's fantastic that someone is talking about it, thank you for the video link!

They're doing this for the same reason they censored all coverage/discussion of Jonathan Yaniv a few years back. They KNOW the existence of men like that throws a wrench into the narrative that all trans-women are gentle, oppressed little lambs that need the safety of female spaces (and that no "cis-man" would EVER claim to be a woman just to prey on actual females). Self ID cannot pass if the general public is made aware of creeps like this exploiting trans friendly legislation. So the powers that be are doing everything they can to censor these stories.

Sadly, it's working because the women these men target are lower on the social totem pole (ie immigrants, incarcerated women, women in homeless shelters, etc). So upper class libfems wont have to suffer them while chanting TWAW

Scotland is going to try for independence again. If they pass that stupid hate speech law, quite frankly, I would like gender critical Brits shake the hands of the Scottish Parliament, and build a Berlin Wall to keep them from ever getting to Yorkshire. I'll fly over and help lay the bricks.

The UK has it bad enough with free speech that they should sever any ties with any delulu, censorious politicians they can. Ireland worked so hard for independence but now they're at the mercy of their heavy-handed politicians that only just let abortion slip in, but won't let women talk about this. I feel so bad for Irish women. They shouldn't have to put up with this shit.

A hundred cheers for Gript putting up the word "censored" to replace the article. Shame these politicians and make them fucking scared of you for it.

thank goodness this was archived. this TIM was absolutely STUNNINGLY HORRIFYING

It is worth pointing out that this is also why there is such concern among people serious about democracy for freedom of speech and freedom of the press (meaning the printing press generally, not just the mass news media) as a key one-two insurance policy. I have a whole new appreciation of that now. Good on Gript to make clear what was happening with some carefully considered compliance.

Self ID is an invitation to sex offenders, psychopaths, and misogynists everywhere it is implemented. There is lots of evidence. It is an utter failure of a policy and an affront to a civilized society.

It will only ever fail because there is literally no barrier to entry, and therefore no safeguarding. It’s a sex offender’s fucking dream legislation. In fact, it should be renamed sex offender’s rights law. Because that’s what it is.
